Mott's Plus Light Apple Juice Review

Mott's Plus Light Apple JuiceMott's describes their Mott's Plus Light Apple Juice, "is a refreshing juice specially formulated for health-conscious adults who are counting calories. And it's full of added benefits you're sure to love: Fortified with 100% vitamin C, vitamin D and calcium plus it has 50% less calories and sugar than 100% apple juice." Well, with a description like that, I decided to see what it was all about.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 8 ounces

When I got home, I poured myself a glass and noted that this was definitely lighter than regular apple juice. Not pale - just lighter. I took a sip and was shocked to find that it tasted like ... apple juice! No off flavors, nothing funky, and it still has that slightly-thicker-than-water mouth feel. In a way, it made me think of Trop50 - the only real noticeable difference between this and real juice is appearance.

Each 8 ounce serving of Mott's Plus Light Apple Juice provides 60 calories, not fat, 14 grams of sugars and 20% of the daily value for vitamin D along with 100% DV vitamin C.

The ingredients are apple juice from concentrate, natural flavors, malic acid, calcium, vitamin C, sucralose (Splenda), and vitamin D3. At $1.68 for a half-gallon, it's not the cheapest, but not terribly expensive, either.

I appreciate the lower calorie count, and really loved the flavor of this Mott's Plus Light Apple Juice. While I understand some people prefer 100% juice for its naturalness, I eat fruit as my fruit servings for the day, and juice is merely another beverage, so I will definitely be revisiting this in the future.
